PumpkinDB> "key" key SET [`key "value" ASSOC COMMIT] WRITE [key RETR] READ "value"
Allocates on the heap for the binary form definition.
EmptyStack error if there are less than two items on the stack
It will error if the format of the word is incorrect
It may error if this word is a built-in word that was previously defined.
works : 1 'val SET 1 val. empty_stack : [SET] TRY UNWRAP 0x04 EQUAL?. empty_stack_1 : ['a SET] TRY UNWRAP 0x04 EQUAL?.
